Abstract: Neuromuscular fatigue is believed to be a contributing factor to injury in athletic situations. To examine this idea, it is necessary to establish functional fatigue models that are representative of the type of physical activity that takes place in athletic training and competition. The purpose of this study was to validate a novel functional fatigue protocol (FFP) that reproduces the demands of a sporting situation i.e. accelerating and decelerating the body, changing direction, jumping, landing, and metabolic stress.
